Shakshouka, huevos rancheros or uova in purgatorio – this breakfast dish is based on a spicy tomato sauce with eggs poached in the sauce, topped with fresh herbs. In an Arabian kitchen, this national dish is traditionally prepared in a cast-iron pan or tagine. Flat bread with a savoury sauce is also traditionally served with it. 




Combine the savoury eggs in tomato sauce with your preferred ingredients, like spinach, feta cheese or seasoned bacon bits. There is no limit to what you can do with them!
